Our first blog…

Hello, and welcome to The postcards to the human body’s first blog. I want to firstly thank you for partaking in this journey and choosing to read this blog, it means a lot for us. We wanted to create a blog so that we can document our progress of this project, share our passion with similar individuals, and connect them in one platform.

We have just finished uploading our first image, that we drew a few weeks back. It is amazing to witness the journey of our work from the start were we selected our designs, right till the end where it’s published on our website. We want each piece to deliver a meaning behind it, in a way that promotes the well being of our mental health and shares positivity. Our first art piece, we named ‘flourishes minds’ as it shows that if we feed our mind with love the same way we feed flowers with water, then it too will bloom and flourish.

Each of our images is displayed in the format of a postcard, addressed to one of the organs in the human body. We know that this way, it is showing appreciation to our bodies and promoting self love. We will continue posting more blogs in future, for now, goodbye.
